“Jim Jarmusch once told me Fast, Cheap, and Good… pick two. If it’s fast and cheap it won’t be good. If it’s cheap and good, it won’t be fast. If it’s fast and good, it won’t be cheap. Fast, cheap and good …

pick two words to live by. Tom Waits.

"I am dedicated to inspire, interpret and to dream with you. As a qualified engineer, who started earning an income from my hobby, I love to design solid wood furniture and enjoy embarking on a journey with each client individually. Designing high-quality, sumptuous and aesthetically pleasing furniture, brings me pleasure. The understated qualities of design and materials, bring an unmistakable air of sophistication, a sense of style and a feeling of personal identity, to your home.

With this in mind, all my timber is hand-selected for grade and quality, to excite the heart and ensure the beauty, functionality and longevity of my products. I put a great deal of thought into the design of all my furniture. I delight in beautiful, creative, sometimes challenging ergonomic designs."

My design process is not a mere computer simulation, using existing templates, pre-programmed designs and standard forms.We create hand-built masterpieces of astounding and enduring beauty. I have been creating furniture with strong visual impact that displays individuality and charm for over 30 years and intend to do so for another 30 years to come.


the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through

Of course we prize good design, and skilled craftsmanship, and beautiful materials, but we create the feeling you get when you walk up to piece of furniture that somebody made especially for you and no other person has the same piece!


What a joy!

  • "Craftsmanship requires a fusion of skills, knowledge, understanding, and imagination, perfected by experience." - Glenn Bowman (Owner @ Vermont Soapstone)

We are obsessive about human beings making things by hand. 

“We don't value craftsmanship anymore! All we value is ruthless efficiency, and I say we deny our own humanity that way! Without appreciation for grace and beauty, there's no pleasure in creating things and no pleasure in having them! Our lives are made drearier, rather than richer! How can a person take pride in his work when skill and care are considered luxuries! We're not machines! We have a human need for craftsmanship!”
― Bill Watterson, There's treasure Everywhere.
